Atkins Diet Recipes: Low Carb Pound Cake (E-IF)

** Recipe included in my new low carb, gluten free cookbook, Low Carbing Among Friends. Please check it out at our website @ http://www.amongfriends.us **

In partnership with FaveDiets ( http://www.FaveDiets.com ) recipe site, I was asked a couple of weeks ago to post a recipe on how to have a birthday cake while doing Atkins Diet. I tried multiple recipes for both the cake and frosting, and came to one I like. This cake features the coconut and almond flour I ground a few videos ago.

Here’s the original recipe from Linda’s Low Carb: http://bit.ly/eC3M29
